Foundation Matwork

Encompassing the principles of Pilates, the breath work and asana practices of yoga, and the athleticism of dance, Garuda is heralded as the face of 21st century fitness.

Holistic, organic, dynamic – Garuda is the hybrid that is revolutionizing our approach to exercise. Garuda Matwork Foundation is a Pilates-based system that builds gradually from the micro to the macro. Here movements start first by isolating individual muscles, then move on to the myofascial lines they belong to. This gradual formulaic approach makes it especially effective for people with dysfunction or imbalances.

Garuda was conceived and developed personally by James D’Silva, during his own dedicated practice over many years as well as in his inspiring teaching of these disciplines to others.

All of the exercises are systematically devised to bring your mind back into exercise while making your body the leanest, strongest and most flexible it has ever been.

“The beauty of the Garuda Method is it can be applied to a whole range of people - the professional athlete, the dancer or to those who have rarely exercised in their life.”Elizabeth Conway
